Stac Pollaidh...

By Scottishlandscapes  
......reflected in the still waters of Loch Cul Dromannan. This was taken 3 days after the last upload, the sun in this one is shining directly on the Stac and the fg is in shadow.

The mirror of the mountain in the Loch is a feature of the area, the Loch sits in a hollow and the wind blows over without touching the surface.

This is effectively only three tones, light, mid and dark and it works very well. Lovely reflections and a beautiful shot.

The stillness of that water is quite remarkable. A glorious image, Dougie, you must be proud of this one.

There's a nice bit of light on THAT hill Dougie, you've caught it well . We've been trying to avoid the area for a while but we're having withdrawal symptoms now.

Know this spot very well. Normally Stac Pollaidh is shrouded in mist and you were very lucky with the reflections that day.

Thanks for your comment on my upload today.
I have one big advantage over many new digital SLR owners - I have someone to explain how to use it. Phil is being very patient with me during the learning process Smile He claims it's the blind leading the blind, but I don't believe him!

you've got some cracking shapes in them there hills up there.

this ones ace, makes the dales look rather featureless in comparison...

creaqting a great documentary of the place, covering far more than the usual glen coe and rannock moor shots we see churned out.

I've passed this a few times and always thought it was so bare. However, I will need to put on my photographer's specs the next time I visit - this is exceptional.
